Leonard Cohen: I'm your man. "Freedom" For decades, Leonard Cohen has seen fit to song-write for just about every imaginable topic, as witnessed in the song "Hallelujah," the standard for pop-up alt-religion albums. Thus, his songwriting and his albums have a lamentably big part to play in the popular idiom. Indeed, I'd assume that he's one of the most-mentioned lyricists of the contemporary era. "I'm your man," as if all the listeners are prisoners in a loveless marriage. He has even been a guest on "Letterman." But has his songwriting been realistic?
John Guarino: Ezra Pound, Theodore Roethke and Theodore Kaczynski. I think that among the three poets mentioned - at least in the mind of the editor - that I will be most likely to read in the news is poet Ezra Pound. He comes from England, lives in Italy in exile, and was imprisoned for treason in the U.K. for years, and has been a political oppositionist in the U.S. For a man who has been in jail for his ideas, Mr. Pound could never stop stirring the pot. And he does it with poetic beauty. But is he truly great? Maybe you disagree.
